Creating and Adding Custom Patterns to Inkscape
« on: January 09, 2012, 12:51:01 PM »
New project for you Carolyn. :P .  Now that we've found Pattern Cooler and you all who cannot add patterns to the image in your cutting software like SCAL and eCal might be able to add the pattern to Inkscape to P2C.  I'm not trying it since I don't need it but I challenge Carolyn or Kay to work it out from this tutorial and let us know if it can "safely" done with Inkscape.

You could be waiting a very long time. I have tried so many things with pattern in Inkscape and there is always a join where the tiles meet. I only use pattern if I create my own design in Inkscape and use a transparent background.

As you seem to be having fun with patterns here are a few more sites that may interest you. I have been playing with them on and off since Christmas and will be posting about them on my blog as soon as I can get the information written up.

http://www.colourlovers.com/seamless this site has a downloadable program that can be used free for a while (the download has more options). There is also a section with patterns that can be changed http://www.colourlovers.com/patterns. I just haven't tested they can be downloaded.

Edit, I found out you can download any tile created by others if you select preview in the options. I am not sure that is the idea of the preview though, so be careful if you do download any of the tiles.

Same issue as Carolyn. I get the white line between my patterns in Inkscape. I am a pattern freak and this is the one thing I would really love to see fixed in Inkscape. I did successfully add patterns to Inkscape a long time ago using the procedure in this tutorial (or something similar involving editing the xml file), but since they don't work I never tried it again.
